I’m pushing
off letting go
maybe being alone
isn’t lonely maybe
alone isn’t the
right word for
how I feel I keep
trying

 

trying so hard to
get you to walk
into my life I run
off the path looking
for you only to find
that I have lost
my way
and by the time I
stumble back
disoriented and
dizzy I forget
how to be myself

 

I need to stop looking
for you because
whoever you are
you will come
you will come
I need to stop
looking for you and
start trying to find
myself.

This piece is about not being so concerned with finding the perfect person to be with, and learning to love yourself before loving others.
